American Bald Eagle

Juvenile American Bald Eagle

Yesterday a juvenile American Bald Eagle perched atop of the Wood Duck house at Bassett Creek Park.  This spot was frequently occupied by a Great Blue Herron.  The Eagle utilized the roof top for eating a sunny it caught earlier in the pond. Juveniles don't take on the full appearance of a mature eagle with bright white head feathers until their fifth year.
